Seven Songs

I was tagged by Shay of The Ongoing Project for the seven songs I'm into right now. Here they are, with video or links to listen.

The Last Shadow Puppets - Standing Next To Me

I listened to this album a lot on the bullet train in Japan. I didn't really know what to expect from an Alex Turner side project but I love the retro romanticism of the record.

Vampire Weekend - Oxford Comma
This is such a fun, summery-sounding album

Sam Roberts - Taj Mahal
I haven't listened to his new album yet, but hopefully will do soon. This just reminds me of his wicked gig at Deer Lake Park a couple summers ago with Broken Social Scene. I wish he was coming here this summer, I hate how bands who are playing Pemberton seem to be skipping Vancouver.

The Jam - Pretty Green

Mark Ronson/Santogold's go is alright but you can't beat the original.

Don't Rain on my Parade, from Funny Girl

Because Barbra Streisand is awesome and I need to watch more musicals.

Blur - Country Sad Ballad Man
I have no idea why this song keeps getting stuck in my head.

Radiohead (well, Thom & Jonny) - The Rip (Portishead Cover)

I'm convulsing with excitement for their show...less than 2 months! This is a gorgeous cover of a great song.

I've been away so I haven't followed who's already been tagged, so if you come across this and you want to be tagged, here you go!
The rules are: "List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to."

And now, back to figuring out my Japan posts...

Oh I know! I am sooo dying to see Sam Roberts. I have been spaming his myspace page with requests. The new album is super awesome too!! And yeah, the hockey sticks are my hubbies (one is from the '88 Olympics in Calgary). :-)
